Objectives

  • Provide a cost effective production mechanism for the fabrication of moulded seals with a reduction in their dynamic friction
  • Reduce production costs related to the demoulding process, by developing ceramic coatings that reduce the adherence elastomer-mould
  • Opening access to new markets of sealing solutions for highly demanding applications, enabling member SMEs to gain a competitive advantage, by offering added-value low friction seals.
  • Affordable sealing solutions that reduce their energy consumption by reducing friction, with subsequent positive economic and environmental impact
  • Affordable sealing solutions with enhanced tribological properties.
  • Enhance the competitiveness of European SMEs in the sectors of plastic and rubber sealing components and mould manufacturing.
